Antron

Post by ronr » Tue Aug 20, 2019 11:08 am

Is White Sparkle Yarn by Wapsi, or Ms. Lydia's Sparkle yarn the same thing as "clear antron"? I've seen many references to clear antron being added to fur blends when making dubbing blends... and am confused since I can't find any source of "clear antron".

Alternately/also, notice carpets kicked to the curb. Tote a knife; cut you off a slice. You'll be doing the environment and your tying a favor.

There is a dubbing available with Clear? Antron already mixed in called SLF Hare's Ear Plus. Most suppliers carry it.
Good Stuff. :)

I’m not sure if there is a totally clear available, I bought a lot of all available colors but the nearest thing to clear was white. It’s the Antron Tri-lobal which I obtained from bookmailet.com
